A tennis rating of 4.5 indicates the person is starting to understand and execute the power and spin shots while maintaining pace of the game.
Regarding this, how do you get rated as a tennis player?
How Do I Get an NTRP Rating? When you register for a League team or a tournament, you will be asked to provide your USTA Member number. If you do not have an NTRP rating, you will be guided to the Self-Rate Questionnaire that allows you to choose your rating level.
Herein, what is the difference between a 3.5 and 4.0 tennis player?
The 3.5 is simply trying to keep the ball in play. The 3.5 player will win points and games by staying in rallies and letting the 4.0 make mistakes. Whereas the 4.0 will win games by forcing errors and hitting more winners.
Is a 7 UTR good?
The UTR system is powered by over 7 million match results, across 700 thousand players in over 200 countries. This system is used by most college coaches in the recruiting process.

General Characteristics of Various Playing Levels
2.0: This player needs on-court experience. This player has obvious stroke weaknesses, but is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles play. 2.5: This player is learning to judge where the ball is going although court coverage is weak.
To improve the volley from a 3.0 to a 3.5 level, a good drill to practice is to get your hitting partner to give you a short ball to try attack. Then follow up by coming up to the net to put the volley away.
